Although SRK made the most of it by playing Pokemon...
Shah Rukh Khan made light of a situation that has been plaguing him since many years now. Yesterday night he was detained at the Los Angeles International airport. He took to Twitter to share his frustration and said, "I fully understand & respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks." We totally agree with him. Every damn time?! Like how is that even possible? Along with him, all his fans deserve an answer to that question. Well, US state department did apologise for the inconvenience but with a pinch of salt.

Shah Rukh went on to post something really amusing after that. He writes, "The brighter side is while waiting caught some really nice Pokemons." Trust only SRK to make the most of a difficult situation and make us chuckle too. Obviously, everyone wanted to know why it was done to the actor despite him downplaying incident with a Pokemon instance. Soon enough Nisha Biswas, Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, replied to SRK's tweet with an apology but it wasn't without some taunt. She writes, "Sorry for the hassle at the airport, - even American diplomats get pulled for extra screening!" OUCH!

SRK replied to the said tweet in a very intelligent manner trying to make her understand it's inconvenient. He replied, "No hassle ma’m.Respect the protocol,not expecting to b above it. Appreciate ur graciousness, its just inconvenient." U.S. Ambassador to India, Rich Verma, also took to Twitter to make amends saying, "Sorry for the trouble at LAX . We are working to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Your work inspires millions, including in the US." SRK gave him a similar reply as Nisha.
